DFDS Update - Calais Industrial Action Thursday 19th January

Due to National industrial action in France, on Thursday 19 January between 0800-1700, there will be severe disruptions in the Port of Calais, which we understand will affect all operators.

This action will also cause disruption for the delivery and collection of unaccompanied trailers, for 24 hours, as there will be no access to the Unaccompanied Trailer Park.


Due to the restricted access to the UTP it will be necessary to cancel the following departures on the Calais<>Sheerness route.

  • Sheerness – Calais Thursday 11:00 hrs
  • Calais – Sheerness Thursday 23:59 hrs

The first available departure will be 11:00 hrs ex Sheerness Friday 20th January


Due to this action, we anticipate that some departures between Dover and Calais will be cancelled:


Please be assured that ALL departures between Dover<>Dunkerque will be unaffected by the industrial action and will operate its normal schedule in order to support our valued customers.

Please note that during the disruption we will be unable honour time specific bookings, and we will ship all traffic on a first come first served basis.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused and be assured that we will continue to provide you with regular updates throughout the day.
